Vinyl Chloride
VCM
Vinyl Chloride Monomer
Vinyl Chloride (a.k.a. VCM, Vinyl Chloride Monomer, Chloroethene) is an organic compound, in the organochloride class. In room temperature, VCM is an ethereal/sweet odor gas; however, in industry, it is most often handled as a liquid. It is a major chemical commodity, mainly used in the production of PVC (polymer polyvinyl chloride), and for this use alone, vinyl chloride is among the top twenty largest petrochemicals in world production.

Vinyl Chloride Production from Ethylene Dichloride | VCM E11A

This report presents the economics of Vinyl Chloride production from ethylene dichloride (EDC) in the USA using a typical thermal cracking process. In the process under analysis, EDC is thermally cracked to produce Vinyl Chloride, also generating hydrogen chloride as a by-product.

This report is also available in report subscriptions offered by Intratec.

Details: 500 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   106 pages   From $799

The cost analyses presented in the report VCM E11A target a 500 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Vinyl Chloride Production from Ethane and Chlorine | VCM E21A

This study reviews the costs associated with Vinyl Chloride production directly from ethane and chlorine. The process examined is an early stage process similar to that developed by European Vinyls Corporation, now owned by INEOS. The process is a direct ethane to vinyl chloride monomer route. The economic assessment assumes an industrial plant in the USA.

The cost analyses presented in the report VCM E21A target a 500 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Vinyl Chloride Production from Acetylene | VCM E31A

This feasibility study reviews a typical hydrochlorination process for Vinyl Chloride production from acetylene. In this process, anhydrous hydrogen chloride is reacted in vapor phase with acetylene over a mercuric chloride catalyst producing Vinyl Chloride. The economic analysis presented is based on the construction of an industrial plant in the USA.

Details: 280 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   106 pages   From $799

The cost analyses presented in the report VCM E31A target a 280 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Vinyl Chloride Production from Ethylene and Chlorine | VCM E41A

This study presents the economics of Vinyl Chloride (VCM) production from ethylene and chlorine in the USA. Initially, ethylene is chlorinated to produce ethylene dichloride (EDC). Then, EDC is thermally cracked yielding VCM and HCl. The HCl produced and ethylene are reacted with oxygen, yielding more EDC. This leads to a so called “balanced process”.

This report is also available in report subscriptions offered by Intratec.

Details: 500 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   107 pages   From $1,499

The cost analyses presented in the report VCM E41A target a 500 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Vinyl Chloride Production from Ethylene and Chlorine | VCM E42A

This study also approaches a detailed cost analysis of Vinyl Chloride (VCM) production from ethylene and chlorine as raw materials. Initially, ethylene is chlorinated to produce ethylene dichloride (EDC). Then, EDC is thermally cracked yielding VCM. The economic analysis presented assumes a plant located in the USA.

This report is also available in report subscriptions offered by Intratec.

Details: 500 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   107 pages   From $1,199

The cost analyses presented in the report VCM E42A target a 500 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Vinyl Chloride Production from Ethylene and EDC | VCM E51A

This report also presents the production cost of Vinyl Chloride from ethylene and ethylene dichloride (EDC) in the USA. The process examined combines two process. First, Vinyl Chloride is produced via thermal cracking of EDC, which generates hydrogen chloride (HCl). It is then used as raw material with ethylene in the EDC production via oxychlorination.
